    Briked Wii from a bad theme

    Please help!

    After installation Army of darkness.csm (from 25 pal 4.1 themes archive)
    I have BANNER BREAK.
    System 4.1E - softmode
    Sn.Wii LEFXXXXXX
    cIOSCORP_v3.5
    homebrew, dvdx, wad manager, ios 256 (rev 17),
    Starpatch, bootMii (boot2) as ios

    preloader - does not works

    I use all button combination (reset on start or + & - )- does not works

    i don't have GC controller or any other devices

    I try Hand Formatter

    but i have the same health menu screen and System files corrupt massage.

    i'm sure i have a boot2 as ios
    Why hand Formatter can't load bootmii
    Maybe SD card need to be formated as FAT32?
    i use FAT.
    i have a Kingston Micro SD adapter with 2 GB Micro SD
    or i need another SD???
    file Nand Formatter1.1.elf - i rename it to boot.elf (maybe it's not necessary)

    Please help!

    Download Dop-Mii_v12_CB2_BB2.zip
    Extract contents of folder to SD card
    Insert SD card in wii and power on
    Dop-Mii will start automatically
    Load IOS249
    Choose IOS/MIOS/BC
    Install IOS70 v6687
    Backup one menu by pressing B
    Install System menu 4.2E for your region

    The only thing I'm unsure about is you say you have boot2 as IOS? That makes no sense it would have to be Bootmii as boot2 or IOS or both which is what I think you mean??

    If you don't have boot2 boomii or priiloader, you'll need to get a gc-controller and do savemiifrii.

    If so, burn MMM-250.zip good and proper
    Backup and format the sd-card
    Extract cIOS60-v6174.zip to sd:\wad
    Extract (4.1e)-System Menu-NUS-v450.zip to sd:\wad
    Extract Priiloader 0.4.zip to sd:\apps
    Save hacks.ini to sd:\



    Do savemiifrii, once the recovery menu loads, insert the MMM-250 disk.
    MMM should load
    Select Reload Ios, reload ios250
    Select wadmanager
    Install cIOS60-v6174.zip
    then

    Install (4.1e)-System Menu-NUS-v450.zip
    Then press 2 and load the MMM "App Manager"
    Load Priiloader
    Read the warning, Hold B and press +/A while holding B
    Priiloader will install
    Power off the wii, hold reset, keep holding reset, power on the wii, keep holding reset, priiloader loads
    Click system menu hacks, enable block disk and block online updates

    Edit: You may be able to do this without savemiifrii, just put the MMM-250 disk into the wii and it may boot. Otherwise you would need to do savemiifrii.

    Thanks for the reply

    i have a BootMii/boot2 as IOS here the Read-me - file

    "Cons: Relies on a vulnerability in boot1 that was fixed mid-2008; if your Wii is
    newer than this, the HackMii Installer will not allow you to install this
    form of BootMii. Installation is complicated and slightly risky; we have
    tested it and believe it to be safe, but a power failure at the wrong time
    during installation could leave your system unusable."

    so i can't install BootMii as Boot2 because of this


    i install as BootMii/IOS
    "
    This mode will install BootMii into your NAND filesystem as an IOS (IOS254).
    It behaves identically to BootMii/boot2, but you must launch it from a special
    program (the Installer, Homebrew Channel, or your own code.)
    "

    So i have BootMii identically to BootMii/boot2 but as IOS 254.


    I try Dop-Mii_v12_CB2_BB2 (thanks for the link) but it can't boot at startup.

    I think this can help only if you manage to install BootMii as boot2.

    I don't think - some kind of ios or system preloader running at startup and can boot any code,
    bootable elf files or ios 254.

    It's also look like banner bomb huk - preloader needs to check SD card on Startup -
    how can i force sys preloader to do this?

    Does anyone know what kind of ios or program code running at startup?

    i need some-kind of way to boot IOS 254(BootMii) at startup or autobutable disks with wad manager or bootMi.

    if i put DVD - Wii trying to read it (while health menu screan) -
    maybe i can put some kind of executable code inside Dvd?
    or I can connect Wii-mote to my PC - we know that Wii-mote have his oun memory.

    is it possible to put some-kind of executable code inside Wii-mote?

    I know about SaveMiiFree huk but
    it's a big problem here to find old wire Game Cube controller.
    is it possible to emulate GC controller buttons push?

    if you push reset after the Health screen you can see many icon-
    animation( on a black field) before banner break screen (before system files corrupted message) -
    if you continue to push reset - it will show this animation again and again.
    - i think this moment - when some kind
    of ios or loader program checking for the system-menu errors.
    is it possible to do something else this moment to skip this check?

    Yes, you have Bootmii as IOS and you are correct in saying you can't have it as Boot2 because your console doesn't have a vulnerable boot1. As far as the rest of your post I think we're a little lost. You should read the post by Mauifrog thoroughly and give his suggestion a shot. The instructions he gave are to make an autoboot disc to try to recover as you mentioned in your post.

    Put the bootmii folder on your sd card with the cboot file
    then load bootmii through the HBC,
    then load boot.dol

    Uhh thanks for the advise but how can i load HBC?
    i manage to install bootmii as IOS 254.
    i don't have bootmii as boot2
    I have my own bootmii folder on sd.
    i can set AUTOBOOT=HBC (bootmii.ini) but it's useless
    i need to load HBC on startup - but how?????
    my preloader doesn't work - after broken theme installation.
    i'm not sure - what do you mean about CBOOT file ?
    i have STANDART bootmii folder with ppcboot.elf, armboot.bin and bootmii.ini
    How can i manage to load HBC on startup if i can't load Bootmii?
    Is this some kind of new HBC loader huk???
